COOLA Organic Suncare Review

COOLA is one of my go-to sunscreen brands. I take  their products on all my travels and use their products on an everyday basis. As a staunch believer in SPF 365 days a year, rain or shine, clouds or sun, indoors or outdoors there’s no such thing as having too many sunscreen products on hand for me. For full disclosure this is not a 100% organic brand but they use as many ingredients as possible that are natural, organic, sustainable, a Farm to Face sourcing philosophy and do NOT use parabens, paba and phthalates. Plus,  they formulate with Plant Protection®, which allows them to achieve clinically tested, broad spectrum and antioxidant-rich protection while using fewer traditional actives.

I’ll start with the face products first which are packaged in these luxurious glass bottles.

Dawn Patrol Makeup Primer SPF 30

This is one of their newest products and it’s very similar to the Daydream Primer which I regularly stock up on (I previously reviewed this product & the Rosilliance BB Cream here) but it’s completely transparent so it’ll suit all skin shades. It’s velvety smooth and absorbs seamlessly, instantly making your skin baby soft. It has a subtle and natural honesuckle scent whereas the Daydream one has a more marshmallow scent and contains Iris, White Lily & Honeysuckle stem cells. I highly recommend you give Dawn Patrol a try if you love the Daydream Primer or you don’t want a white cast as the Daydream Primer is more suited to lighter skin tones.

Makeup Setting Spray SPF 30

This product is such a lifesaver and I haven’t lived without it for the past few years. When I’m out and about with a face of makeup on and need to be reapplying sunscreen every 2 hours I don’t want to ruin all my makeup by rubbing sunscreen. This product solves that. I spray about 5 times all over my face while keeping my eyes closed (very important as it’ll burn your eyes) and voila I stay protected for a few more hours. I don’t necessarily use it to set my makeup but more to apply protection to my skin.

SPF 30 Natural BB Cream Unscented Matte Tint

This is an amazing BB Cream with SPF option for those of you looking. It’s velvety, dries matte but still leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized even though I have dry skin, and has a natural & neutral beige tint that would work for most light and possibly tan skin tones. It also contains ingredients like Cucumber Fruit Extract, Evening Primrose Oil, Linseed Seed Oil, Rose Hip Oil & Shea Butter to fight free radicals, leave skin hydrated and retain moisture. There’s also the Cucumber version that has no tint but basically feels like the exact same formula with a light cucumber scent. I prefer these MUCH more to their Face Sport White Tea SPF 50 product which is very fluid/runny and does not absorb well into my skin.

Body Plumeria Moisturizer SPF 30

This is a very lightweight and runny sunscreen made with  70%+ certified organic ingredients, and is formulated with patented Oleosome technology which boost the effectiveness of UVA/UVB filters. It’s very much a body moisturizer infused with SPF as it contains free radical fighting Organic Rose Hip Oil to deliver essential Fatty Acids, Minerals and Vitamin C. Organic Evening Primrose, which is rich in Omegas 3 and 6, calms, tones, hydrates and aids in reducing redness, and organic Shea Butter, which is high in Vitamins A and F, smoothes, softens and balances skin. I adore the plumeria scent which reminds me so much of Hawaii.

8oz Eco Lux Sport SPF 50 Guava Mango Sunscreen Spray

This is a jumbo sized sunscreen spray that will last an entire long vacation and be enough for more than 2 people I’m sure. It goes on clear and requires very little to no rubbing in. I found this particularly useful during my island vacation trips as I had to protect my entire body plus reapply every few hours or after swimming plus offer some to my travel partner. I’ve run out of sunscreen before on trips and it was not pleasant having to purchase toxic chemical sunscreen from the local supermarket. The guava mango smells delicious and tropical and like their other products contains 70% organic ingredients.

I’ll be updating this post with my thoughts on the tan it provides in the near future.
